Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
If you need an easy dinner recipe that does not require a whole bunch of ingredients then you are going to love this simple recipe for chicken Tikka Masala made right in your slow cooker.
The recipe starts with about 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts that you cut up into chunks.
The chicken meat goes into the slow cooker along with a jar of your favorite Tikka Masala curry sauce.
We used a jar of Patak’s Tikka Masala Curry Simmer Sauce which we were able to source at all of our local grocery stores (Albertson’s, Kroger, Target and Super Walmart). But if you cannot find this particular brand near you, have no fear. Just pick a jar of Tikka Masala sauce and give it a try. You should be able to find this sauce in any grocery store with a half-way decent international foods section.
If you cannot find Tikka Masala sauce in jars at all where you live you could perhaps try making your own homemade Tikka Masala sauce at home.
The third ingredient is simply cooked rice. I always like to have a variety of rice in my pantry so to go with this Indian dish I opted for some lovely Basmati rice which I used this recipe for Crock-Pot Express White Rice to cook the rice about 30 minutes before the chicken was about to be done in the slow cooker.
Simply scoop some rice onto a plate and then spoon the chicken and the wonderful curry sauce over the rice. Dig in and enjoy!
